It took a whole lot of burritos and guacamole (which costs extra) to build Chipotle founder Steve Ells’ house, but if you’ve got about $4 million just collecting dust in your bank account, his former Denver home can be yours.

Ells had the 5,321-square-foot home built in 2001 in Denver’s historic Country Club neighborhood, the Denver Post reports, and it sounds very fancy. It’s designed by architect Thomas Briner and features four bedrooms, five bathrooms, and a property that abuts the Denver Country Club. Ells sold the home in 2008 for $3.5 million and it’s now back on the market for $3.8 million.

“What makes it so special is the architecture. It’s like nothing else,” LIV Sotheby’s International Realty listing agent Ian Wolfe told the Post. “This home is at the level of a home you’d see in Los Angeles. There truly is nothing like this in Denver.”

No word on whether there’s a burrito stand, but the home does feature an outdoor kitchen that has a pizza oven and charcoal grill. Ells, it turns out, was very particular about his kitchen equipment.

“These materials were the absolute best at the time the house was built,” Wolfe said. “He paid premium prices for everything. No corner was cut.”
